Unfortunately I didn't have time for the summit but made it up the Ptarmigan ridge. Wonderful views, a very easy to follow path, but still nice and challenging. Will be back with more time to complete.

great walk up in the morning mists and then finally the summit clouds.. don't be in a hurry as the views are worth taking your time.. easiest up the 'main' path just east of the Rowardennan YHA or car park then down the 'Ptarmigan path'...More

Hard enough to be challenging, but very achievable at the same time if you're a good standard of fitness. View of Loch Lomond and 360 nearer the top are stunning

We walked on a good clear day without a lot of wind. We walked the Ptarmigan path up and the tourist path down. The reasoning is that the ptarmigan has sweeping views throughout (even if the summit it blocked by clouds so you get to...More
